Indeed magnets will kill a hard drive, such as the one in your iphone used to hold your music, as it uses magnetic impulses to make
the Binary 1/0 on the disk platter. Passing a magnet over a hard drive will disrupt this data,
and make the disk unreadable.
While many hard drives in computers/laptops have magnetic shields to prevent this from happening... the itouch does not.
when it restarts, does it immidiately restart again? like a cycle? that happened to my old compputer, the hard drive was shot. mabe that's what happened to you. a new hard drive for apple classic 80 gb ipod i found was around $150-$170 ouch. take it to apple, ask them to run diagnostics, tell them you think your hard drive is worn out or something.
If you have the Nano with the smaller screen measuring 1" x 1.25" and got it 3 years ago, you most likely have the 2nd generation. Apple doesn't really have cases on their site for the older nano. I have the same one and purchased my case at Target. They have a good selection of 3rd party (non-Apple branded) cases. You can also check an Apple store if you have one close by.
Hope this was helpful.
Have a great day
It really doesnt matter, you will just have to have the hard drive plugged in when you sync you ipod or want to listen to music with your ipod. The only thing i have to say about it is if the external hard drive is if its connected to your computer with a USB rather than a firewire, then it might be slower to load than if you keep it on an internal hard drive. But it will work and wont be very slow, just slower.
do you listen to ipod daily or weekly? if yes your ipod is just fine....your computer may be asking you to run virus/malware scan too....delete old files or games that you really have not use in awhile....then download the newest version of itunes....connect ipod to pc (itunes should be showing it)...now on itunes check ipod for the latest in diagnostic / and update it......
